Working with Families and Community Agencies to Support Students with Special Needs by James E. Ysseldyke
Book DescriptionWorking With Families and Community Agencies to Support Students With Special Needs addresses two of the most exciting facets of working with students with disabilities: "life-stage" issues (early intervention and effective transition) and collaboration (working with families and professionals). Ysseldyke and Algozzine explore the larger context of students' lives outside school, and how life-stage issues and collaboration interact with and influence teaching. Including a pre-test, post-test, and key vocabulary terms, this informative resource offers valuable answers to the following questions: o What types of transition services exist and when are they necessary? o What should educators know about early-childhood intervention? o What issues should be considered when working with families? o How can schools involve community agencies and businesses? o What options are available to students with special needs after high school? o What key elements are critical to a student's success in the classroom and beyond?
